Major Adviser. A. Aue
Students are encouraged to meet with an adviser to plan a program as early as possible. Sometime before or during the first quarter of the junior year, students planning to major in Statistics should consult with a faculty adviser to plan the remainder of their undergraduate programs.

Minor Program Requirements:

The Department offers a minor program in Statistics that consists of five upper division level courses focusing on the fundamentals of mathematical statistics and of the most widely used applied statistical methods.

Preparation. Statistics 13 or 32 or 100 or 102.
Graduate Study. The Graduate Program in Statistics offers study and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Statistics, including a Ph.D. in Statistics with a Biostatistics Track. Detailed information concerning these degree programs, as well as information on admissions and on financial support, is available from the Department of Statistics.
Graduate Adviser. Debashis Paul
Statistical Consulting. The Department provides a consulting service for researchers on campus. For more information, call the Statistical Laboratory office 530-752-6096.

Integrated B.S./M.S. Degree Program

The Department offers undergraduate majors a path into the Statistics M.S. program through the Integrated Degree Program (I.D.P.). This program is intended for students who seek to be employed as statisticians in government or industry. The minimum major GPA requirement is 3.200 at the end of the junior year, although students with demonstrated excellence in academic work (with a major GPA of 3.500 or above) are most likely to be admitted. Before moving into the graduate phase, I.D.P. students must satisfy all requirements of the B.S. degree.

To apply for the I.D.P., undergraduate students must submit the Statistics I.D.P. form along with supporting documents during the last quarter of their junior year, to enter the I.D.P. in the first quarter of their senior year. In addition, applicants must submit an application to the M.S. program during the senior year, prior to the deadline of the MS application. Students with a major GPA of 3.500 or above may waive the GRE requirement in the M.S. application. Before applying to the I.D.P., students are strongly advised to consult with both the undergraduate and graduate advisers.

Once a student enters the graduate phase of the I.D.P., they follow the course requirements for the Master's degree (36 units, 18 of which are graduate level). A maximum of 6 units taken in the undergraduate phase can be transferred to the M.S. provided they have not been used to satisfy any requirements of the B.S. degree.
